Japan's university students have had a rough six months and the immediate future isn’t looking much brighter.

While much of the country has more or less returned to some semblance of normalcy, students have almost been left behind in terms of their studies.

"It's like we're still stuck in the state of emergency," wrote @rpdjyz3zVGL10o, including the hashtag “Daigakusei no nichijyō mo daijida” (“The daily lives of university students are also important”). “Please listen to the voices of university students. I'm a freshman who has never attended a real lecture, and I'm at the end of my tether."
